Victor VPCIIc - Searching for Infos

Postby schubl » 2019-11-10 @ 19:51

Hi!

I got a Victor VPCIIc 8086 XT-clone with onboard-Hercules Graphics and monochrome monitor...
It has a very loud MFM-HDD which sometimes isn't starting properly, which I would like to replace with a XTIDE-CF in the future...
I would like to add a CGA or EGA-Card (depends on the repair-status of my EGA-Monitor) for which I need the DIP-Switch-settings on the mainboard...
Unluckily I have no manual for the machine...
Also I have no setup disk to change the "BIOS"-Settings, eg disable the HDD...

Does anybody have some infos or maybe a diskimage for me?

I tried searching for you and all I could come up with is there is a museum in the UK that has various boxes that contain the manual and another box has utilities. http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/det/ ... s-Manuals/

Thanks for searching, but this is the same, that I found some time ago...
I tried to contact the museum, but got no response...
Maybe I should try again...
